Laura Marling ‘When Brave Bird Saved’ by Fred & Nick
When Brave Bird Saved is Fred & Nick’s 15 minute short film featuring the first four tracks from Laura Marling’s new album Once I Was An Eagle – a combination of artist and dance performance in a cinematic setting, that serves as an introduction to the album and a precursor to Fred & Nick’s video for the album’s first single Master Hunter.
Fred & Nick say: “We wanted to progress things on from our previous collaborations with Laura, and with the narrative of Once I Was An Eagle being so strong our interpretation was from a theatrical perspective. We wanted this to feel expansive, ambitious and have a strong sense of journey at its core. The story expands and continues onwards into the video for Master Hunter and then further beyond in the coming months.
“We shot the film in just ten hours with heroic effort from all involved – with particular mention to choreographer Kitty McNamee, dancer Jessica Lee Keller, DP Tom Banks and his team, steadicam op Ari Robbins, and our producer Sloane who was incredible and stuck with it throughout – and Billy Mead and his team at Ten Three, James Tillett and Edwin at MPC, Andrew Curtis and Lucile – all of whom consistently went above and beyond during the post process.”
The trailer is below – and the full 15 minute film is here.
